Peggy Noe Stevens – 8.4 

Nose: Cherry candy-like first nose.  Floral notes of rose petal and mature honeysuckle blends with vanilla and ginger. Gracious oak and wood shavings.

Palate: Butterscotch and gingerbread. Light brown sugar cookie and caramel icing. Golden raisin reveals the layers of fruit.

Finish: Puff of heat that surrounds the tongue and lingers for a sweet finish of pepper.

Comment: This Bourbon would be nice in cocktails because it hesitates to overpower.

Susan Reigler – 8.2 

Nose:  Fruity with ripe peaches and a great deal of vanilla, some honey and brown sugar. Smells like a summer day.

Palate: The peaches carry through to the palate with some light toffee joining the vanilla. There’s a sprinkle of cinnamon and dusting of nutmeg with some underlying hazelnuts. 

Finish: Fruit dries rather quickly to oaky tannins. Not bad, just too short. 

Comment: Would make a lovely dessert sip. Serve with vanilla and peach ice cream.
